I think i view evolution as separate from religion, rather than a replacement for it, in that it is possible to believe in evolution irrespective of your religious belief. Evolution could only be said to replace religion if it were not possible to believe in both.
I didn't say it was used by some to replace religion. I said it was used by some to replace God.
Clearly i am an atheist, but if i ever became a Christian my view on evolution wouldn't change.
Since Jesus Christ is into changing people, you cannot guarantee that He will not change you in some regard of your thinking.
You just cannot be too sure.
If you receive Christ, He is powerful and subdues us, yet in a gentle way.
He is like the grass that can grow through the crack of the cement.
Don't promise yourself that in this or that you will not change.
You don't know.
All I am saying is that Jesus
is definitely into transforming people.
If you receive Jesus, sooner or latter you will believe like Jesus, think like Jesus, live like Jesus.
His love will conquer you and you will be subdued, transformed.
Whatever you enjoy, He will eventually show you something better to enjoy. That is, something more enjoyable about Himself.
But it is a process. It is a process called conformation
- That is conformed to His image. And whatever the truth is, that is what will make you free.
